 Reasons to keep a child home: 
  • -Communicable disease.

v   Food Requirements                          
  • Grains: (serving size example: 1 slice of bread, 1/2 cup of cooked rice or pasta, 1/2 cup of cooked cereal, 1 ounce of ready-to-eat cereal)

  • Fats & Sweets: Limit calories from these as they are "empty" calories and often times of little nutritional value. We suggest making your own "sweets" in the form of carrot cookies, trail mixes, dips made from yogurt and fruits etc. The new Food Pyramid does include "fats", some in the form of oils - such as olive oil in cooking. The "fats" limit refers to food such as doughnuts, fried foods etc.
If your child does not have the recommended servings we are required by the State of Wisconsin to supplement their lunch. Keep in mind though after one reminder there will be extra charges added to your invoice to cover the cost of these.
